what is FAST Cache?

what is FAST Cache? You can compare FAST Cache as a “DRAM cache” but built from FLASH drives, with higher capacity available. Let’s start at the beginning: DRAM cache – is a storage-system component that improves performance by transparently storing data in very fast storage media (DRAM). It’s capacity is limited and very expensive. FAST cache  technology supplements the available storage-system cache (DRAM cache), adding up to 2 TB read/write FAST Cache. The nice trick is that FAST Cache...
